§ 45. Mr. Lubbock
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how much he estimates it would cost to divide Pentonville Prison into four self-contained units, as described in the proposal a copy of which has been sent to him.
§ Mr. Brooke
I can give no firm estimate, but the cost would be very high indeed, for the problem of dividing Pentonville into four self-contained units would be far more intractable than the author of the proposal has realised, and the constructional work entailed far more extensive.
